Joey is special for so many reasons. I waited over a decade for another Mastiff. 2020 and the pandemic have been horrible for the world. I am lucky to have my job, as a nurse, and lucky that we received extra “covid pay” on our work days. I saved all of it and figured all considering, why wait any longer. His name is special too. When my first dog I adopted as a teen, was starting to take a turn, at 18 years old, every day a new co-worker made a point to ask how he was doing. Many months later, passed away and she cried with me. I thought wow this lady doesn’t even know me and she asks every time she sees me. It was so touching, I thanked her one day when we got to know each other better. Told her it meant a lot bc she didn’t even know me. I found out this co workers son passed away so i told her if I ever get another dog I’ll name him after her son. Many years passed by, different jobs, different careers. Then I messaged her on fb so she would be the first to know and she remembered the promise! Joey has brought so much joy to so many. He’s a hit at the pet stores . He is so playful and happy and drooly !!
